First 300 families for Toys for Tots pick up presents Saturday, still time to donate

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- This Saturday, the first 300 families will be picking up presents at the Toys for Tots North Pole. 

The presents have been being collected over the past few months and Christmas time is almost here. 

At the North Pole, there’s over 20,000 toys- from stuffed animals to bikes to board games to puzzles and more. 

Saturday is the first pick up for families, and Dec. 12 and Dec. 19 are pick up days as well. Toys for Tots coordinator Janel Doyle said they’ve had more community support than ever this year. 

“We just want to really thank the community. In all honesty this has been an unbelievable year for us for Toys for Tots. We knew it was gonna be hard this year because of the pandemic, we knew that going in. But for our first week of toy collection we’ve had more than we ever had our first week. So we know that there’s a lot more giving hearts this year,” said Doyle. 

If you want to get involved or donate, they still need volunteers. You can email Doyle at
